Obama proposes NSA reforms

In a much anticipated speech this morning, President Obama said the NSA "plays a central role in the defense of our nation." But the president also laid out a series of reforms he plans to initiate when it comes to the way NSA conducts surveillance. Changes would include strengthening "executive branch oversight of our intelligence gathering." The president also announced the U.S. would no longer store telephone metadata. The president also detailed several others ways in which his administration plans to change the way intelligence is stored and gathered. Bruce Schneier, author and security technologist, joins us to discuss the president's plan. (Photo: AP/Carolyn Kaster)
